Enjoy Classic Caribbean Style at Peter Island Resort

May 24, 2013 by

Peter Island Resort

For those ready to escape the hectic day-to-day routine and feel the sand between their toes, the Peter Island Resort and Spa offers five separate beaches, a gorgeous setting, and old-school Caribbean style hospitality.

Talk about secluded! This resort is located on a private island. Guests arrive via boat from Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. If there’s one label to describe the atmosphere, it’s laid back. There are no crowds or even cars.

Beachfront and Ocean View Rooms

The Peter Island Resort features a selection of 52 spacious guestrooms. They aren’t fancy, but they are clean and comfortably furnished.

The Beachfront Junior Suites offer a fantastic view and direct access to the Deadman’s Beach, while the Ocean View Rooms are situated between the marina and main pool.

It’s still pretty, but ocean view may mean a glimpse of the ocean, so if that’s important, a Beachfront location is what you’re looking for. All the rooms include a private patio and hammock.

Beach Fun

Deadman’s Beach offers powdery sand, almost no surf, and no steep drop off. It’s an ideal swimming beach but perfect for relaxing beneath the palms in the shade of an umbrella, too.

The Deadman’s Bar and Grill is a favorite stop for lunch and afternoon drinks. Other nearby beaches include Little Deadman’s Beach which is about an 8 minute walk from Deadman’s Beach and located on the other side of a small rocky promontory.

A little further away is the Honeymoon Beach. If you book this one in advance, you get a guarantee that you’ll be the only ones there.

Activities

Once you’ve rested up, you may want to try your hand at one of the many water activities available. Try your hand at kayaking, snorkeling, or take the Hobie Cat out for a ride, all at no cost to Peter Island Resort guests.

Guests also enjoy chartering a private boat which can be done through the island’s marina, or arrange with the resort to pack a picnic lunch and arrange a romantic day at Honeymoon Beach.

Oceanfront Spa

The Peter Island Resort also features an oceanfront spa that offers ayurvedic treatments (centuries-old healing method native to India).

Even though the spa is located in the hills, it is an easy walk and features stunning views overlooking Big Reef Bay. After your massage, the outdoor terrace is a perfect place to relax and soak up the beauty of nature.
